Hua Hin Bikes

Big Bikes Hua Hin

In Hua Hin the biker scene is mostly the small cc scooters and the like. As with other towns and cities in the provinces there are plenty of small cc bike shops like Honda and Yamaha selling them. CBR 150s are available too in Pranburi. Otherwise they usually have to order them in from Bangkok.

Bike Shop Hua Hin Small

Small bike mechanics in Hua Hin are all over the place making it very easy to get your small bikes serviced and looked after. The prices are like elsewhere in Thailand, low due to labour charges being affordable.

Big Bike Shop Hua Hin

There is at least one specialist big bike shop in Hua Hin.

It's on the right as you ride out of Hua Hin on the Pala-u road. They have plenty of big cc bikes typically less than ten years old and usually in excellent condition.
Here you can also get the low-down on the biker scene - when bikers events are kicking off etc.

Biker Gear

You can get some basic gloves and helmets in the local stores and in Tesco's. For full-face helmets that fit properly (size medium is best) a large shop on Sra Song Road (parallel to Petchkasem) sells them. They are not full-face imports but are certainly decent quality.

Most of the true biker gear in town, is in the big bike shop on Pala-u road and the leatherworkers shop on Poonsuk road (almost opposite the flower bar)

Biker Scene

In Hua Hin the bikers, like in most of Thailand, is big choppers and cruisers. You have 2 main biker gangs - The Headstone Riders and The Vampires. Usually any big biker festivals will involve them and this can be a good chance meet and hang out with them. From what we've seen of both gangs they are quite friendly and aren't inherently violent or dangerous.

Getting to Hua Hin

Hua Hin Map Cha-am

Being about 200 km from Bangkok means about 3 to 5 hours drive time, an airport operates flights out of the city but this is usually on an infrequent basis. Minibus' run regular shuttles to Hua Hin from Victory Monument and back to Bangkok from Hua Hin city center.
